sure which model you need? There are many models to pick
from and it depends what you are using the metronome for. If you need
a metronome for music purposes, any model will work well, but
there are some with more features than others. Below are a few tips to
help you choose a model.
The Wittner keywound metronomes with a swinging pendulum
let you see the motion of the beat. The bell models will also accent
the first beat with a bell sound. The keywound models give the most
natural sound of all the metronomes and are very pleasing to the ear.
The Taktell Mini is a great metronome for portability, but the sound
is louder on the Taktell Piccolo or Standard Models. Using the
keywound models is simple and with winding the key about 8 -12 times
the sound should last from 20 to 30 minutes. The plastic standard
models are identical to the standard wood model... except for the case
which is wood. The wood is made from a composite wood and then
finished with walnut, mahogany, or black finishes. The Wittner
Qm2 quartz metronome has been the most dependable model we have sold
and the engineering of this metronome is very high.

Note the Penguin and Cat metronomes from Wittner
are real metronomes... not toys... the sound is a little louder than a
Quartz and keywound models are a little easier to
use than digital models, as you can dial the tempo quickly with a
quartz model - a digital model requires pressing a button
till you get to the tempo. - Look at Matrix,
Seiko and the Wittner
Mt70 for great quartz
models at a low price.
Digital Metronomes have many features and will
increment the the tempo by one beat at a time. With a digital
metronome you can get the tempos 60,61,63,64... etc. Quartz and
keywound models use musical tempos to determine the increments.
